Trump disputes former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Comey's claims

Trump disputes former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Comey's claims

President Donald Trump said Friday he is "committing" to having the United States abide by Article 5 of the NATO treaty, which says an attack on one member nation is an attack on all members.

"I didn't say that".

Still, Trump said in the speech that the memorial is a reminder of "what forever endures", including "the commitments that bind us together as one".

During his Senate testimony Thursday, Comey said he relished the idea of recordings of his conversations with Trump becoming public, saying, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes", and seeming to taunt the president at one point, remarking, "Release all the tapes - I'm good with it".

Comey testified he had nine one-on-one conversations with Trump - and detailed each in memos just after they met for fear that the president would subsequently lie about their interactions.

"I'd be amazed if anyone on this side of the Atlantic believes this changes anything when it comes to Trump", said Nicholas Bouchet, a scholar at the German Marshall Fund contacted during a work trip in Berlin. French President Emmanuel Macron likened Trump to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

'But yes, absolutely I'd be committed to Article 5, ' he said.

After the meeting, the two presidents held a common press conference in which Donald Trump praised Klaus Iohannis for leading the fight against corruption in Romania and for the country's efforts to increase its defense spending. Just an hour or two earlier, Tillerson had called on Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, and Bahrain "to ease the blockade", which he said had "humanitarian consequences" and was "hindering" military operations (Qatar hosts the US's Central Command and its biggest military airbase in the region).

He also pointed out that Romania, which stands of NATO's Eastern flank, heavily relies on the United States for defense.

He also told a reporter he'd be willing to refute Comey's testimony under oath. Instead, Trump let his lawyer do the talking for him.

"This issue is a million miles away", said Andrew Castillo, a 21-year-old attendee from the Dallas area who largely supports the president, . "Hopefully it will be the beginning of the end of funding terrorism".

"Having to reaffirm something by the very nature of being here and speaking at a ceremony about it is nearly laughable", Spicer said. "No plausible case. We must distinguish crimes from pol sins".

The attorney is expected to file a complaint with the Justice Department inspector general about the revelation next week, according to a person close to the legal team who agreed to speak before the filing on condition that the person's name is not used.
